Event description
"Ripples Across South Australia – the first satellite public art commemoration to the victims and survivors of domestic and family violence"

About this event

It’s here! Spirit of Woman and the City of Onkaparinga are excited to launch our first ‘Ripple’ site – a public art space designed to acknowledge the impact of DFV in our community, providing a safe space to reflect, grieve, connect, and heal.

PLEASE JOIN US along with other community changemakers, as we officially launch our first ‘Ripple’ site at Rotary Park, Christies Beach.

Where: Rotary Park, Christies Beach, 1 Beach Road Christies Beach, SA 5165

When: Friday, 14 May 2021

Time: 10.30am to 12.00pm

We will be filling the park with doves on sticks as a symbol of a world free from domestic and family violence. We encourage you to display our promotional dove at your workplace, or download our hope dove here, write your message (can be anything that you want to say about DFV), and bring it along.

Pancakes will be provided by the Rotary Club of Morphett Vale.

Why is this site so significant?

In 1977, trailblazer Helen Oxenham, OAM, created one of the first women’s shelters in South Australia at Christies Beach. She did this in partnership with her two close friends, Peggy Robinson and Josie Harvey.

An advocate for women’s rights for over 40 years, Helen founded Spirit of Women in 2015, and conceived ‘The Place of Courage’ – Australia’s first public tribute to the victims and survivors of domestic and family violence. This Rotary Park ‘ripple’ site finally sees her vision and years of campaigning come to fruition.

Spirit of Woman wish to acknowledge the following support without which we could have not achieved this significant milestone in history.

Supported by a grant from the Department of the Premier and Cabinet

Supported by City of Onkaparinga and Rotary Club, Morphett Vale.
